The Park Ridge Police Department’s Major Crash Unit (MCU) working in conjunction with STAR, a multi-jurisdictional crash investigative team, is investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash that occurred Monday January 29, 2018 at approximately 9:58 a.m.  The crash occurred at the intersection of Touhy and Chester.

            A 2016 Kia driven by a 49 year old Des Plaines woman was eastbound Touhy when it crossed the traffic lanes striking a 2000 Mack truck.  The Kia was then struck by a 2011 Chevy traveling eastbound.  The Park Ridge Police Department secured the scene as the Park Ridge Fire Department began life saving measures on the woman driver.  She was transported to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.  The other drivers involved sustained non-life threatening injuries.

            The investigation is on-going and further information will be released when available.
